Just wanted to share this video as I see a lot of people with this gimbal startup calibration problem.

Just like countless others, I started experiencing this violent gimbal shaking on startup.Again like others it started happening after the most recent firmware update. As someone else speculated on another thread -  my guess is that DJI have adjusted the gimbal calibration on startup and some older Mavics with looser gimbal plates (worn/stretched elastic bands) are now having the camera hitting the drone. The fix in the video below has worked for me. It's rudimentary and annoying that this is even an issue but it works! It must aid the clearance of the camera during it's calibration.

Not my video and the guy is not getting enough love for this, it's a bodge but it has got my Mavic back in the air!

What a simple fix. Many of my RC aircraft have bits of foam for quick fixes.
